Thomas Lynch is well known in the small town of Milford Michigan. Every year he guides hundreds of families through the burial process -- handling the logistics -- acknowledging their emotions. Lynch is featured in a PBS documentary that's set to premier this week. He'll be our guest as we take a rare look inside the world of undertaking. Monday at nine on the Sound of Ideas.
